I’m at Innovate right now with Kevin, Jerry and Sam…looking forward to learning a bunch in the next couple of days.
I wanted to let you know that our team released a new update for the YouVersion Bible App for the iPod Touch and the iPhone. There are many new features in this update, but the most significant is the ability to download several translations to your phone/ipod and use them while offline. This is a big deal for iPod Touch users who no longer have to be connected to wifi to read the Bible. You can read more on the YV blog. Also check out this review on AppCraver.
I want to personally thank the folks at Thomas Nelson for being the very first Bible publisher to allow us to make their translations (NKJV, NCV) available for download in the Bible App.
Though the new features are great…I’m even more excited about the increase we are seeing in scripture engagement. Now almost 340k people have installed it and have been engaged with the Bible for over 43 million minutes…and that makes every minute of development time worth it.
